  • A wonderful valley with huge vews but spoilt by hundereds of trucks moving rocks from a nearby mine. the whole place was covered in dust from these trucks. You also need a 4x4.

  • Abandoned park, apparently -- gates have been taken down, and didn't see a single soul during our visit, perhaps because it was a rainy Tuesday. That turned out to be a plus, as we had lots of completely quiet hiking trails entirely for ourselves, and the rain soon turned into snow, turning everything into a winter's paradise. A memorable afternoon!
  • The work to get there is definitely worth it. Be prepared to get snowed on in deep summer - which might sound awful but it was actually refreshing. Park fees are a little steep in my opinion (8 lukas)
  • Without any service, need to be well prepared
  • Nice view!!! Nature, Nature, and Nature!
  • El embalse es impresionante por su belleza natural. Los paisajes camino hacía el lago y lo que hay después del mismo son muy bellos e interesantes. No entramos al Parque El Yeso, pues llegamos un tanto tarde a la entrada y pintaba a lluvia; pero se no indicó que hay aguas termales al final del camino... El último tramo hacia el lago (unos 6 kilometros) son en grava, pero hay mucho tránsito de camiones pesados en la zona por inactividad minera. Todo el trayecto del camino bordeando el lago es una sola vía estrecha, que debe manejarse con cuidado y mucha cortesía, pues deben usarse los espacios para salir y dar vía muy oportunamente, más con los camiones de las mineras que suben o bajo seguidos... Se recomienda paciencia, al final el lugar vale la pena ser visto y disfrutado...
